t’s almost that time again. The only day in summer when Marylebone is closed to traffic. The day it comes alive with the excited buzz of the season – the sights, and sounds of Marylebone’s Summer Fayre. Organised by The Howard de Walden Estate, this is the day that Marylebone Village becomes a microcosm of creative zones in the heart of London’s West End. Now in its seventh year, it serves as a celebration of summer and the local business community, offering everything from bustling market stalls to dance workshops and live entertainment, for all the family to enjoy. Starting at the top of Marylebone High Street, in the Purple Zone, you are certain to be enticed by the aroma from Orrery Barbeque outside the Conran Shop.

Teenage Cancer Trust
very day in the UK, six young people will face a cancer diagnosis. Teenage Cancer Trust understands that teenage cancer requires specialist care. In fact, young people have a much better chance in their fight against cancer if they are treated by teenage cancer experts, in an environment tailored to their needs. Teenage Cancer Trust builds units in NHS hospitals that improve quality of life and chances of survival for young people, aged 13 to 24, with cancer. Unlike ‘ordinary’ hospital wards, they are designed specifically with teenagers in mind and include recreational and study areas, plus access to media facilities such as the internet, TV and music. It is estimated that with the number of units currently around the UK, only half of the teenagers currently diagnosed with cancer have access to this dedicated, specialist support. The charity’s aim is to build enough units so that by 2012 every single teenager with cancer can be treated in one. For more information about Teenage Cancer Trust and how you can get involved, visit teenagecancertrust.org Registered Charity No: 1062559.
